Just Another Coincidence


Last week whilst I was whining about SUVs, Soundsurfr and I had a private e-mail discussion. I said:

Certainly, if the culture sways away from the use of SUV's to where it becomes very uncool to drive them it will improve the situation slightly.

I know Sound won't mind my posting his response:

The culture needs to say – as long as we’re hog tied to a bunch of lunatic fringe Muslim extremists for our oil, we need to use one of our SUV’s to drive 7 children from the same neighborhood to school one time instead of using 7 Hondas to drive them all to school separately. The culture needs to say – we’re not buying any more oil from those , so you can each use 15 gallons of gas per week, and you can choose to put in your SUV or your Ferrari or your motorcycle or your converted school bus unless you have a valid reason for needing more. The culture needs to say, I’ll pay 5 thousand extra bucks to put a hydrogen fuel cell in my SUV and those idiot Iranians can rot in hell. The culture needs to say – maybe windmills along the ocean shore are unsightly, but not half as unsightly as skyscrapers aflame with jet fuel. The culture needs to say – if weaning ourselves off foreign oil will solve half our foreign policy, military and environmental problems, then we really shouldn’t be voting oil barons into office anymore.

What the culture doesn’t need to do, is tell us what style of vehicle we should be driving.

Hmm, voting oil barons into office. I wonder if this is just a coincidence?

I would like to ask all the flaming idiots who continue to support this administration (and who are not part of the top 1% who control 99% of the country's wealth)one question:

How did YOUR net income after expenses do this year?

Viscount: Of course that's just a coinky-dink.

Sound: I like your way of thinking.

Those guys shouldn't be kissing Bush's ass, they should be licking it. Man, they must love that Bush! And they suck Cheney's dick for Christmas. They're faith and values have really, really paid off!
